Our Vetting Process
With a selective process, we work with causes that possess three critical components of which qualify a personal cause for success and the ability to push past your personal network and into a wider community of donors.
For a campaign to succeed in crossing the rift between one’s personal networks and a broader community - the ‘why’ – must motivate, inspire and compel. A campaign must express a human need, one that can relate to anyone. The donor should be able to understand there is an honest need for help and an attainable solution in which they can actively play a role.
A core network, or community, of supporters who will give and share to build initial and critical momentum. These networks can be family and friends, work colleagues, neighbors, like-minded activists in a related space, religious community, or others.
Your campaign must be credible. In our experience, an individual’s cause faces higher than average skepticism despite its credibility. To assert integrity you must be able to get references from respected members of the community and the assistance of a nonprofit for the management of funds.
In combining these three core components, a campaign is immeasurably more likely to inspire the wider community to contribute and ensure a successful campaign.
